PAINT Phil Delisle, Sharon Katz, Michael Markowsky, Natasha Mazurka and Duane Slick • Curator: Leanne L’Hirondelle Painting - the act and the physical work - can create slippages between high and low, product and object, and/or process and action. The intangible act, while manifested in the physical work, can the underlying or overt purpose to the work itself. Some would argue that painting as a medium of expression in Canada has largely been regulated to the space of the commercial gallery or the hand of the amateur. Yet, these are just a couple of the 'places’ that painting occupies; professional artists continue to compel the medium as attested to by the large number who are choosing this medium. The artists in this exhibition challenge and push through action, form, and ideology what the idea of a 'painting’ can or should be in unexpected and unique ways.
